Transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) has emerged as a minimally invasive technique for resect rectal tumors. TEM needs specialized centers, expensive equipment and a long learning curve. As laparoscopy this technique is a methods to perform miniinvasive operations. We modified this technique and performed a laparoscopic transanal polypectomy using a SILS™ Port inserted in the anus, a 30-degree optical laparoscope (5 mm), a 5 mm tissue grasper and a LigaSure™ 5 mm. In expert laparoscopic surgeon’s hands this technique seems easy and can be performed without TEM’s equipment.
